Well, first advantage is that Clark Cooper's team now is official Expat team,
JC has delegated expat development to them, so this Expat 1.95.1 is latest
official stable version.
Second, several bugs were fixed, look their project site for details.
Third, autoconf/automake now used to configure it which is much more painless.
Fourth, name space support was extended, support for own memory management was added,
set of functionality from Cooper's perl-expat was integrated.
